Noon to Midnight
Are you ready to GLOW? Join the New Visions Class of 2014 in their effort to raise $20,000 for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) of Northern New York! Glowathon is this year’s new and improved Dance Marathon experience! The purpose of Dance Marathon events like Glowathon is to unite students for Children’s Miracle Network by standing for kids who can’t.
How it Works:
Glowathon is open to students in grades 7 – 12. All school districts are welcome!
All students who sign up must raise a minimum of $30 for CMN. Sign up here! (Coming Soon)
Students who “glow above and beyond” the fundraising minimum will be entered into a prize drawing once for each addition $25 raised above the $30 minimum!
Students can raise funds online using Donor Drive (see “Sign up here”) and/or they can collect cash and checks (payable to Children’s Miracle Network) and turn in to the CMN Office at Samaritan.
Glowathon is a 12-Hour Dance Marathon and students pledge to dance, stand, and stay awake for the duration of the event. There will be games, tournaments, and activities in addition to dancing. Lunch and dinner will be provided; in addition there will be a concession stand throughout the entire event so students can purchase snacks!

The Peter Pan Birthday Club of Children's Miracle Network at Samaritan Medical Center is open to all children and is designed to foster and encourage philanthropy in children. Birthdays are a special time to celebrate and by joining the Peter Pan Birthday Club, your child has the opportunity to impact the life of a sick child. Club members ask birthday party guests to bring a monetary gift to Children's Miracle Network of NNY instead of a present. All of the gifts made through the Peter Pan Birthday Club help meet specific needs of children in Northern New York.

The Children’s Miracle Network Baby Photo Contest, presented by Creative Imaging Fine Photography, is an exciting annual event that raised much needed dollars for our local children and families. Celebrating the beauty of our children, the photo contest is open to children ages 5 and under, and offers parents an opportunity to have their child’s photo taken at a low cost. Following the contest, online and in-mall voting will be available for friends and family to choose their favorite contestant! After a month of competitive voting, the top three contestants will be announced at a ceremony at the Salmon Run Mall, where cash prizes will be awarded. At this time, all families will be able to pick up their FREE 5 x 7 photo as well as any additional photos ordered. For more information please visit the CMN Baby Photo Contest website.
Annually in late fall 2014
Radio stations dedicate three days of air time to sharing touching Miracle Stories and Montages (stories set to music), reaching out to their listening audiences, asking for donations to support Children's Miracle Network.
A Touch of Grace will once again host its popular annual fashion show to benefit Children’s Miracle Network each year. This past year, the fashion show will feature not only the latest styles in prom dresses and tuxes, but also in bridal fashion, Sugar Plum ball styles for little girls, and other formal wear occasions. We ask for a $10 donation per guest to watch the fashion show. All proceeds benefit Children’s Miracle Network of NNY.
